Renée Ricciardi‘s respect and fascination with honeybees has taken her across the globe. More recently, she spent three months in Italy, working on an extremely personal photography project involving bees and beekeepers.

These photographs have never been seen in public before.

The opening is free and open to the public. We hope you will consider a tax-deductible donation to Beyond Benign‘s Green Chemistry education and outreach program, which seeks to advance green chemistry in the classroom and beyond.

Renée Ricciardi is a Boston based artist and photographer. She received her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and is the 2013 Morton Godine Travel Fellowship recipient.

Commercial clients include Boston Architectural Magazine, Children’s Hospital Boston, Massachusetts College of Art, The Center for Women and Enterprise, and Louis Vuitton Boston.

Renée is currently working on a personal assignment photographing apiaries, beekeepers, and organic food in cities across Italy.
